Back to School & College Savings at Walmart (Aug 1 & 4)


Back to School and College season is here and it’s time to start picking up supplies and essentials for a successful year.  Back to School shopping can be quite daunting depending on the amount of children you are shopping for and their specific needs. Lucky for me, I only have to shop for a first-grader, so his supply list is pretty modest. As the years go by, the list will grow with more supplies at higher price points and in a few years, I’ll have to shop for little brother too. Regardless of list size, I LOVE to get the best deals on school essentials and Walmart is always my go-to spot for savings.


Starting Friday, August 1st, Walmart will be offering great deals on top electronics, dorm décor and school essentials.  In addition, they will also be hosting a special online-only Cyber Monday event on Monday, August 4th! Here’s a sneak peek at some of the Back to School deals that will be available in-store and online. Be sure to take advantage of Walmart’s new Savings Catcher price matching tool after you shop! You may be eligible for additional savings!
